    Quads VS Thrusters

    I recently purchased a custom Tommy Moore quad performance fish. This is the first quad I've ever ridden in many years of surfing. It's the quickest, most responsive board I have ever owned or been on. I started on twins in the 80's and like everyone else went to thrusters when they became the predominate shortboard to ride. I guess i'm looking for some input from others who have ridden both fin setups to see which they prefer and why. I've only had this board out in waist high clean sloping surf and it blew the thrusters I've been on out of the water. I'm curious to if it's the fin setup, the shaper or maybe a combo of both?? I've surfed shortboards from Natural Arts, Hobie, Al Merrick, Quiet Flight, Boneyard and Aipa to name a few. The Hobie was an awesome stick but still doesnt compare to the T. Moore. Thanks for your feedback.
